Leah Patgorski: Textile Sculpture & Installation
Leah Patgorski has degrees in Architecture and Fine Arts, and she has worked for a drapery manufacturer, a wood shop, a design school, and various architects. Her artwork consists primarily of sculptures and panels made of textiles, and she has been commissioned to make various pieces ranging from a life-size canvas rowboat to a 70-ft-long installation of layered fabrics. Leah’s work has been exhibited in Chicago, Pittsburgh, Milan, and Vienna.
Lori Hepner is fine artist working primarily in conceptually based photography, LED device artworks, as well as curating exploratory journeys for other artists. In her work, she performs digitized, luminous traces of personal landscapes to capture the future memories of places. She uses customized LED devices to gesturally re-draw muscle memories from her strolls, paddles, and treks across the Arctic.
57th Street Studios is located in Upper Lawrenceville at 219 57th Street. The building, St. Mary’s Church, was renovated to house 6 Private Studio Spaces available for rent. The spaces are designed for individuals who are looking for access to a mature Creative Contemporary Environment. A lounge and working gallery offers a common shared space that allows tenants of varied disciplines to gather, share, collaborate and feed-off one another. An environment that stimulates and encourages creative conversation to flow freely and openly.
